2023 Visa Application Process

JCMU will facilitate and sponsor applications for Cultural Activities Visas (CAV) for accepted fall 2023 / academic year 2023-24 participants. Details and deadlines for this process are provided below.


All requested documents must be submitted to our East Lansing office as original documents with authentic signatures (ideally in blue or black ink -- Please, no signatures in pencil!). We cannot accept scans/copies, as these documents will be forwarded to Japan and submitted as part of the application for your Certificate of Eligibility (CoE). 

Visa Application Materials Deadline: Wednesday, May 17, 2023
